Stunning build of a fascinating subject!

 

I guess it is good for the world that Hitler made so many bad decisions.  How could a weapon such as that possibly be justified on a rational level, give the resources involved to produce and operate it?  There is no way it could have been a wise tactical or strategic use of time, money, and personnel.  I honestly believe Hitler just thought it would be cool to make a really, REALLY big gun.

 

A single air attack could have easily destroyed it.....or at least severely damaged it.  I will admit it does not look like a particularly fragile piece of hardware.....

Fantastic!

 

The many figures catapult the presentation to a higher level. 

 

They provide a much needed sense of scale.  The figures show just how enormous that gun was.

Thanks a lot @ all ...

 

I do not like the figures very well as I have absolutley zero talent in figures painting ... but all together I think it is ok .... they show the size of the gun... and that's what they should do :) 

 

Cheers

Wow what a model.Keep the building coming. I'm waiting now for mine to come in. Any advise on building this one for someone just now getting back in to modeling?
